Time to Tackle the Spackle!

I hit an awesome milestone today!!  I have officially lost 10% of my body weight!!  I got my keychain from weight watchers today!  WHOO HOO!!  I am ALSO officially in the 250's!!  258 to be exact!  I am SO excited!  So according to weight watchers I have lost 30 lbs!  Take into account the 5 I lost on my own BEFORE weight watchers and that's 35 lbs!  My son weighs 36 lbs.  It BLOWS MY MIND to think that I've lost the equivalent of my SON!  That is just insane!

Here is my keychain and 25 lb weight charm!  WHOO HOO!  I'm going to fill that sucker UP!!!

It's crazy to think I've lost THIS much weight!  A WHOLE PERSON worth of pounds!!  :-P  I love this pic - he is such a goon!

I figured I'd write my blog early today since I am not working out tonight.  I definitely need a rest day after that insane run yesterday!  I'm still feeling pretty proud of that!  I think I'm going to try to talk hubby into going to the store with me just to walk around.  We're so damned broke - but sometimes it's fun to window shop and dream about the things we wish we could have.  LOL  That's pretty pathetic huh?  I like just being with him and the kids - for some reason we all like to window shop - even Pete!  Maybe we will hit up home depot.  I think we still have a store credit for them - we need to buy some spackle so we can fix the walls in the dining room.  We used to have really ugly wood paneling in there - it was SO dark.  Removing it would have cost an arm and a leg, so we filled in the grooves with spackle.  It wasn't the BEST solution - but it was livable.  We should have let it dry and give it a second coat before we painted, but we had wanted to get it done - so for the past 5 years we have had visible grooves under the paint in there!  A few months ago we saw a few gallons of "oops" paint at the store.  That is when someone has it mixed up, but then decides they don't like the color.  We liked the color!  We REALLY liked the price!  $5 a gallon for valspar!  That's pretty darned good paint!  Since the weather is supposed to be so nice this weekend, we were thinking we would tackle the spackle!!  That room really needs a pick me up - after our wildman and his messy, dirty ways!  It will be nice to have a freshly painted room for our Susie's birthday party!

Well, I had better go and feed my brood!  Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful night!! -Monica
